Mario Kart: Double Dash!! differs from prior Mario Kart games (such as Mario Kart 64) by having two characters in each kart, instead of one. One drives the kart, while the other can pick up and throw items in front or behind the kart, to try and slow other players down. The second character can also taunt other players, and provide driving assistance by moving their weight around to help the kart skid around corners. The game includes 16 courses, 6 battle stages, and 20 characters in the game.
Being the first and only Mario Kart to feature teams and two players in the same kart instead of the usual lone versus option, Double Dash!! also offers new co-op gameplay. It seemed to be a new focus for the Mario Kart series instead of a new quality, as its sequel and the next in the series, Mario Kart Wii, didn't continue the feature of team racing.
